    I keep seeing a bunch of young faces in colleges and universities. The education system standards in some colleges and universities are not good for old people who need extra time to get things done in classes because their brains are not as fast as the younger people’s brains are. Also, college and university ageism is profitable for the elite’s family and friends to keep average people from gaining political influence to keep the poor-get-poorer-rich-get-richer status quo going.
